GOG MAGOG Golf Club

Feb 25, 2015

Gog Magog LogoGolfers from the Cambridge based GOG MAGOG Golf Club have raised an amazing total of £7,750 for EACH in 2014.

EACH were chosen as the charity for both the Captain and the Lady Captain at the club in 2014. It costs £5,300 every day to pay for the services and care EACH provide in a day across Cambridgeshire, both at the Milton hospice, at families’ homes and in the community. The money raised by the golf club will more than pay for a whole day of care for those Cambridgeshire children, young people and their families receiving support from EACH.

Most of the funds were raised by a charity day at the club plus individual donations from members and friends throughout the year.

The EACH Pay for a Day scheme encourages groups and organisations to raise the £5,300 needed every day to keep services and care running in the county free of charge for children, young people and their families who live with life-threatening conditions. The chosen day for the GOG MAGOG Golf Club to fund is Wednesday 25th February.

EACH was the obvious choice for my Captains year. I met a young boy while I was receiving treatment for an illness and he told me about how EACH had helped him and also his family. I understood the importance of care and understanding for the whole family and this resonated with me as my children struggled with my illness.

I am thrilled we have raised enough money to fund a day at the Milton hospice, where I recently had a very enjoyable and informative visit. I found a happy and relaxed environment run by very professional and caring staff.

Owen Scott-Reid, Captain in 2014 for GOG MAGOG Golf Club

  • Children like Lucy don’t get the opportunity to go to sleepovers or to their friends for tea, so the interaction she has at the hospice is priceless. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • We are also supported by the 24/7 True Colours nurses and it’s so reassuring knowing we can call on them whenever we need support or advice Helen, William’s mum
  • When we first heard about the hospice we were apprehensive because we didn’t know what to expect. When we got there we realised it was a lovely place where Renee would be well looked after, and we would be able to have a much-needed break. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • Renee loves going to The Treehouse, but it’s great that care staff are also able to visit us at home too. Stacy, Renee’s mum
  • I can’t imagine what it would have been like. Nobody should have to, every family should be offered the support we were, and are still getting Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • It’s been a great opportunity to meet other parents in a similar situation, something that doesn't really happen anywhere else. Helen, William’s mum
  • EACH supports families when they’re at their absolute lowest, helping them to come to terms with their child’s illness, losing them and beyond Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • EACH helps us to create lovely memories and has played an important part in all of our lives, not just Lucy’s. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • EACH has helped us keep Stanley’s memory alive. And allows us to look to the future Brad, Stanley's Dad
  • The play specialists are excellent and I also get inspiration from the activities they organise. Heather, Lucy’s mum
  • I didn’t realise hope was a gift until I became a mum. My little boy taught me many things and that was one of them Claire, Jacob’s mum
  • I really love going to the hospice. I’ve made friends there and get to do loads of fun stuff. Renee
  • We arrived at the hospice feeling scared and alone. We had so many questions – they answered them all and more. Claire, Jacob’s mum
